Update On Our Group's New Forum.

Well the help people still haven't replied, either there are a lot of complaints, or they are just bloody useless. I gave up trying to change the forum via their board, & found another way. I have not done too badly considering, & it looks as though the forum is usable. More problems may arise, but if they do I will work on it. Better than having to start a new forum elsewhere & lose all those years of posts & information. The new forum looks different to the old one, I have installed new & different images in some of the sections. Check it out for yourselves at: https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/eighteenthcenturylivinghistory/index.php?sid=75d999d1f3064aa04a403a813cc2cb2a

Our official forum has been taken over by some mongrel service called TAPATALK. I have been unable to change anything on the new forum & I am unable to log in to their complaints department & feed-back forum. So it looks as though we are dead in the water!!! I will see if there is another service we can move to, but all those years of work & information that has gone into our old forum will be lost. I honestly don't know if I have the energy or the enthusiasm to start all over again.

IF this new service should come good, if this is just a glitch, then I will go to work & try & change things back as close as I can to what we had before. WATCH THIS SPACE as they say!
Regards, Keith.
